We had 8 groups fishing this month with a total of 20 marlin. Highlight was having the two brothers – Chuck and Mike – hooking and landing a double – blacks around 300lb each – Anglers and crew did a good job with that – then having Len (father) landing a 500lb+ black later that day. Sails where also here in good numbers with most fish over 100lb. Tuna where here in good numbers also – with fish up to 240lb. caught along with Snapper – both Mullet and Cubera (we release all Cubera). Rooster fish and Dorado where also in good numbers with allot of the action with poppers on spinning tackle.
We had a fantastic time down there, and couldn’t have been more satisfied with the fishing and the accommodations. I am going to try and get some pictures out to you tonight. At some point, I will need to bring my younger son down there as well. Madison and I have decided that we should count the third Black Marlin we hooked on our last day in our tally, as it actually was on for a while. Because it came out of the water two or three times before throwing the hook, once being a pretty phenomenal dance, we actually got all of the most wonderful part of a marlin catch without most of the work! Madison Ps-We miss your cooking!
Hi Capt. Lee,
Well, the trip was a pure pleasure!! Everyone is back into it here and in AZ but it wasn’t easy. Our thanks to you and Rolando, Juan, Niki, Narcissio and Toddie (I am aware of bad name spelling!!) and all those who made our stay so enjoyable. Fishing or not, we had a great experience. You are a great host with great assistance. Food, beverage, fishing experience, and company –all so good. We will get some photos and film off to you in the near future. We look forward to seeing you again in our future journeys!! The t-shirts will bring great memories! Thanks. Lee, anytime you are lacking in e-mails, just give me a shout!!!!!! Best, Jackie.
Captain Lee, We had such a great time and are missing all of you and the weather. It was 18 below zero when we returned. A really rude awakening. Being at the lodge and with all of you was like “living the dream”. Great company, great fishing and wonderful food. I sure miss the evening margaritas!! Take Care, Sherry
Capt Lee, Geo, Don, and I will be consolidating pictures this weekend and I will e-mail you the ones that are of good quality. We are all working hard now to save up for next year’s visit. Keep the marlins and tuna around until we get back. Todd
